Cook in Storm

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4443/cook_in_storm.jpg

1/50th at F2, ISO 1600 (28mm).

Many New Yorkers would starve without these delivery men and cooks.  The blizzard was a busy night for them and the streets were pretty deserted except for these men running back and forth with their heads down.

Snowstorm, Central Park South

1/125th at F5.6, ISO 400 (20mm).

There are a lot of good things about photography.  It's a tool you can use to meet interesting people.  You get to be creative.  But by far the most important part of it is that it forces you to get your ass out the door when you otherwise wouldn't.

Happy snowstorm everyone.

Window Shopping, St. Marks

My favorite window on St. Marks.  That Rasta with the joint on his penis on the lower right is pretty ridiculous.

New Arrivals

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4421/new_arrivals.jpg

1/100th at F5.6, ISO 800 (28mm).

I can't seem find the article right now, but I was recently reading about an idea called the 'poor tax' or something similar to that.  It stated that the poor often end up spending more money on things like shoes because they can only afford the cheapest $30-$40 shoes, which end up falling apart in 3-4 months, while a $100 pair would last for years.

Over the 30 years that I've been alive, it's seemed that the quality of everything has declined and it's only made life more expensive.  Fashions change so quickly now and clothes fall apart so easily.  It almost doesn't matter if you buy a cheap shirt that will fall apart in a year because there will be a completely new trend next year.  The amount of checkered shirts in my Facebook feed these days is unnerving.

I've recently noticed that neon is suddenly in fashion and being marketed.  Does anyone have anything neon?  I think that's the point, cause then you have to go out and buy it.  Furniture too - it breaks after a few years.  The level of consumption is incredible and it certainly can't be sustainable in the long term.

End of rant.

Paul Kostabi

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4413/paul_kostabi.jpg

1/50th at F2.8, ISO 3200 (54mm).

I don't usually put portraiture up here, but here's one that I want to share.

This was done for an interview released today with longtime East Village punk rock musician, artist, and producer Paul Kostabi.  It's a fascinating story, so take a few minutes and read it through.

Trophy, Wells Fargo

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4411/trophy_wells_fargo.jpg

1/80th at F5, ISO 1600 (28mm).

If ever I get a surreal feeling in New York, it's when I look into the stark and empty windows of the dime-a-dozen glass walled banks.

I think this is a good complementary image to this recent photograph.

Who'd have thought I'd catch a bear and a moose in the last month on the Lower East?
